Don Julio 1942 Añejo Tequila is handcrafted in tribute to the year that Don Julio González began his tequila-making journey. Warm oak, vanilla and roasted agave flavors lead into a lingering oak and rich vanilla finish for a luxurious tequila recognized by connoisseurs around the globe.
Aged in small batches for 2 and a half years, our añejo tequila is made with 100% Blue Weber Agave that is ready for any celebration. Simply serve neat in a snifter or on the rocks for a classic and simple drink.
Don Julio tequila is produced in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, one of the country’s most fertile agave-growing regions. The microclimate and mineral-rich clay soil allow the blue agave plant to flourish.
Each bottle of Don Julio tequila is produced here and features our NOM number — our seal of authenticity — signifying where the tequila was made. Unlike many other distilleries, La Primavera only produces our ultra-premium tequila that is crafted with the same attention to detail and passion that founder Don Julio González embodied. Please drink responsibly.
The presentation is sensational, in a beautiful box/display, but the price is a bit high for an anejo, and this is where you need to decide if it’s worth it. I find it for $110-160 online PLUS shipping, or at my local discount store at $129. plus tax, and that it’s too expensive. To be honest I hear people get it at duty free stores for like $79. and that’s all it’s worth, if that. After all, this is anejo- NOT an Extra Anejo.
NOSE- has a cognac aroma and showed some butterscotch and a creamy vanilla scent with some caramel. Maybe a slight hint of fruit.
TASTE- was very smooth and silky, light colored, thin oil (fast dripping legs), with a clean caramel, creamy toffee/candy nougat type taste. It had a vanilla, spice and cotton candy taste. It’s not the most complicated or bold anejo expression I’ve had, and although it has some elements of a tasty, fine, enjoyable tequila, but this candy, creamy taste is not what I was expecting. NOT MY THING. I was expecting so much more, especially for the price.
